About publishing permissions

If you're the owner of Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides, you can publish them to the Web at any time. If you'd like to allow other editors to publish a document, spreadsheet, or presentation:

  1. Open the document, spreadsheet, or presentation.
  2. Click Share in the top-right corner of the screen.
  3. Make sure the option labeled 'Editors will be allowed to add people and change the permissions' is selected at the bottom of the menu. Otherwise, click Change to change it.
  4. Other users with edit access can then publish, invite others to edit or view the file, forward invitations to mailing lists, and see who else has viewing or editing permissions.

If the option 'Editors will be allowed to add people and change the permissions' isn't selected, collaborators won't see Publish as web page... in their sharing menu.

People who only have viewing access can't publish.
